Tignes the Resort
We have many chalets in Tignes le Lac but many of our catered chalets are also part of an exclusive new development in Tignes Les Brevieres. Tignes Les Breveieres is the original old town of Tignes and so it has all the same high altitude slopes - but is a much prettier place to stay, and in fact one of the more characterful high altitude resorts with some stunning architecture.
Tignes is famous for its excellent high altitude snow, largely due to the Grand Motte which plays host to the highest ski-able Glacier in France. However, the unfortunate fact about Tignes is that it is rather an ugly resort that has fallen foul of the high-rise concrete revolution of the 1960s!
The solution very much lies in Tignes Les Brevieres. Les Brevieres is the original old town of Tignes which oozes alpine charm and consists of lovingly restored and converted farmhouses to exclusive new and tasteful chalet developments. Yet the real beauty of this village lies in its snow sure slopes and high altitude, allowing guests to enjoy premium skiing of a Glacial 'super resort' without the ugliness that goes with it!
The nightlife in Tignes is very good indeed, with a few late night bars and pubs on offer in Les Brevieres. There is also a small nightclub for those wanting a more hedonistic apres ski!
We also have chalets in Tignes Le Lac - the busier part of the resort where there is an abundance of activites, shops, vibrant nightlife and access in minutes to some of the best ski slopes in the world.
Tignes Le Lac is a very convenient and user friendly resort not only for the slopes but for its numerous apres ski and non skiing activities. It benefits from having 57 bars and brasseries, 4 clubs and a plethora of shops. It has something to suit everyone's tastes from ice diving for adrenaline junkies to a more relaxed pace of life for those who want to be pampered in style in the resorts spa centres.
